While digging a new subway line in London, a construction crew discovers first: a skeleton, then what they think is an old World War II German missile. Upon closer examination the "missile" appears to be not of this earth! This movie examines the age old question of how we came to be on this planet. It is surprisingly scary. Written by

I first viewed this film on American television under the title "Five Million Years To Earth". The reason I find this film so fascinating is because the producers had the courage to examine the possibility that evil does exist in the universe in the form of an entity, even though the story is written from an evolutionist perspective. This film basically asks the same question humanity has been asking for millenia: Where does evil originate, and why? Although relatively old and perhaps considered archaic by today's motion picture standards I feel the special effects are compelling enough to keep 21st century viewers, both young and old, riveted to their seats. An excellent film for those of a creationist persuasion as well.
